Water is essential for human life. Living without access to clean, safe drinking water is hard to imagine, but for millions in Sub-Saharan Africa, it’s a daily reality.
2018 marks Voss Foundation’s sixth annual 31 Days to Make a Difference initiative with VOSS Water. Each year, between World Water Day (March 22) and Earth Day (April 22), VOSS Water helps us amplify awareness around the continued need for safe water and adequate sanitation facilities in Sub-Saharan Africa. This year, in a special cooperative effort, retailers Jewel-Osco, Kroger, and Walgreens are joining our mission to impact communities and change lives.
Thanks to their participation, 31 Days to Make a Difference displays will be featured at Jewel-Osco, Kroger, and Walgreens locations nationwide and store photos will be shared on both VOSS and Voss Foundation’s social media platforms. In addition, we’ll highlight the communities in Swaziland that benefited from last year’s initiative and gained three new safe water systems. You can help by following us online and “liking” our posts. If VOSS Water reaches 31,000 likes by Earth Day, April 22, we will be able to fund three more crucial water systems in Sub-Saharan Africa.
“VOSS Water has supported Voss Foundation for ten years now. Although the Foundation is a 365-day cause for us, I can’t think of a better time to highlight how important and prevalent the issue of access to safe water is than during our 31 Days to Make a Difference campaign,” says Joe Bayern, VOSS Water’s Chief Executive Officer. “This year, we are honored to have partners like Kroger, Jewel-Osco, and Walgreens join us to help amplify this message and collect 31,000 likes.”
All of us at Voss Foundation are very grateful to VOSS Water, Jewel-Osco, Kroger, and Walgreens for their support. We look forward to this year’s campaign! #31Days
